If you grew up in Albany and went to school in this area then I'm pretty sure you heard about the "World Famous Harlem Globetrotters" they used to come here and do performances all the time at the Washington Ave Armory.

My middle school used to do this big event where if you did your homework for the month then you could win free tickets to check them out and a meet and greet. I remember the game/show was always so much fun.

If you have never seen the Harlem Globetrotters or experience the magnificent ball handling wizardry, basketball artistry and one-of-a-kind family entertainment that thrills fans of all ages. Then this is a must-attend family event.

 Just be prepare to be amazed as the Globetrotters showcase basketball’s first 4-point line, located 30 feet from the basket! That's 6 feet, 3 inches beyond the top of the NBA’s current 3-point line! You won't want your family to miss it! @TimesUnion
